John ‘A Glasgow Ship Builder’ shares his tale

In the penultimate video from North Merchiston Care Home in Edinburgh, John Moore, a Glasgow ship builder, shares his tale.

Director Duncan Cowles, encouraged John to take control of his own filming day, creating a final film that he’d be proud of.

Mike Heard, Home Manager, said: “John and the other residents who took part in this project really enjoyed themselves. It was their chance to ‘get to grips’ with modern technology whilst sharing their stories to a wider audience. Duncan’s videos are an insight into some of the colourful characters we have here at North Merchiston. John is still as passionate now about ship building in his 80s as he was when he was a young man. The candid rapport between John and Duncan was lovely to behold. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as the residents enjoyed making them.”
